Suicide of a Superpower

Will America Survive to 2025?

Patrick J. Buchanan

Thomas Dunne Books




America is disintegrating. The "one Nation under God, indivisible" of the Pledge of Allegiance is passing away. In a few decades, that America will be gone forever. In its place will arise a country unrecognizable to our parents. This is the thrust of Pat Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower, his most controversial and thought-provoking book to date.

Buchanan traces the disintegration to three historic changes: America's loss of her cradle faith, Christianity; the moral, social, and cultural collapse that have followed from that loss; and the slow death of the people who created and ruled the nation. And as our nation disintegrates, our government is failing in its fundamental duties, unable to defend our borders, balance our budgets, or win our wars.

How Americans are killing the country they profess to love, and the fate that awaits us if we do not turn around, is what Suicide of a Superpower is all about.



America is in unprecedented decline.1—ROBERT PAPE, 2008
The National Interest

The United States is declining as a nation and a world power, with mostly sighs and shrugs...


Praise for Suicide of a Superpower

“Buchanan is an honest writer who … minces nothing except an occasional opponent.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Nobody turns a sharp phrase, drops an historical reference, or makes a literary allusion as naturally as Pat Buchanan.” —Human Events

“Buchanan is a muscular writer, fully in command of the English language he feels is under siege. He is adept at linking history, statistics, and the writings of philosophers and economists to proffer forceful arguments.” —The Washington Post

“Mr. Buchanan … is positively fearless. He is also right.” —Tony Blankley, The Washington Times

“His approach is that of a true conservative, offering a perspective rooted in American tradition initiated by Washington.” —Kirkus Reviews

Suicide of a Superpower traces the changes in governance and culture in America that foreshadow a decline of epic proportions. ... Buchanan is no stranger to controversy. Nor is he prone to exaggerate. The crises he describes are real, and he is not afraid to say they ‘may prove too much for our democracy to cope with.'” —Jack Kenny, The New American Magazine

“A stunning Jeremiad on America's decline, written with characteristic muscle and wit.” —Timothy Stanley, The Telegraph (UK)

“Buchanan offers an astute diagnosis of America's problems and gives constructive suggestions to put us back on track.” —Virgil Goode (Former Congressman R-VA), The Daily Caller on Suicide of a Superpower

“Well-written, well researched and highly persuasive.” —Tom Piatak, Chronicles Magazine
